  A correct measurement of NSLS-II beam parameters (beam position, beam size, circulating current, beam emittance, etc.) depends on the effective combinations of beam monitors, control and data acquisition system and high level physics applications. This paper will present EPICS-based control system for NSLS-II diagnostics and give detailed descriptions of diagnostics controls interfaces including classifications of diagnostics, proposed electronics and EPICS IOC platforms, and interfaces to other subsystems. Device counts in diagnostics subsystems will also be briefly described.

  To measure various beam parameters such as beam position, beam size, circulating current, beam emittance, etc., a variety of diagnostic monitors will be deployed at NSLS-II. The Diagnostics Group and the Controls Group are working together on control requirements for the beam monitors. The requirements are originated from and determined by accelerator physics. An attempt of analyzing and translating physics needs into control requirements is made. The basic functionalities and applications of diagnostics controls are also presented.

  Multi-bunch injection will be deployed at NSLS-II. High bandwidth diagnostic monitors with high-speed digitizers are used to measure bunch-by-bunch charge variation. The requirements of filling pattern measurement and layout of beam monitors are described. The evaluation results of commercial fast digitizer Agilent Acqiris and high bandwidth detector Bergoz FCT are presented.

The National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) uses extruded aluminium chambers as an integral part of the vacuum system. Prior to installation in the Storage Ring all dipole and multipole chamber assemblies must be tested to ensure vacuum integrity. A significant part of the chamber test requires a full bakeout of the assembly, as well as control and monitoring of the titanium sublimation pumps (TSP), non-evaporable getter pumps (NEG) and ion pumps (IP). Data that will be acquired by the system during bakeouts includes system temperature, vacuum pressure, residual gas analyzer scans, ion pump current, TSP operation and NEG activation. This data will be used as part of the acceptance process of the chambers prior to the installation in the storage ring tunnel. This paper presents the design and implementation of the vacuum bakeout control, as well as related vacuum control issues.

The need for a mechanism to control and filter subscriptions to control system variables by the client was described in a paper at the ICALEPCS2009 conference.[1] The implementation follows a plug-in design that allows the insertion of plug-in instances into the event stream on the server side. The client can instantiate and configure these plug-ins when opening a subscription, by adding field modifiers to the channel name using JSON notation.[2] This paper describes the design and implementation of a modular server-side plug-in framework for Channel Access, and shows examples for plug-ins as well as their use within an EPICS control system.

EPICS version 4 extends the functionality of version 3 by providing the ability to define, transport, and introspect composite data types. Version 3 provided a set of process variables and a data protocol that adequately defined scalar data along with an atomic set of attributes. While remaining backward compatible, Version 4 is able to easily expand this set with a data protocol capable of exchanging complex data types and parameterized data requests. Additionally, a group of engineers defined reference types for some applications in this environment. The goal of this work is to define a narrow interface with the minimal set of data types needed to support a distributed architecture for physics applications, data acquisition, and data analysis.
